Combatting depression among the elderly

Sometimes being retired is not really the best situation for a senior citizen.

Many of us have looked to our elders for their wisdom and experience, that they are the rock upon which many of us can lean on during times of doubt and distress. However, many of us are so busy with our own affairs that we hardly ever notice how our elders might be grappling with their own issues of abandonment, failure and loss. Continue reading

PWDPhil Hour is no longer on radio

It was a good run. Last January of 2017, we got good news that we will have a weekly slot on DZRB 738 AM Radyo Pilipinas 1 which was later made twice a week, Saturday and Sunday. The PWDPhil Hour paved the way for the incorporation of what is now a full-fledged NGO known as the Organization for Pinoys with Disabilities Inc. Based in Angono, Rizal, this new NGO is struggling to help its near 10,000 members into becoming aware of their rights and privileges as PWDs as well as whatever government programs and other benefits made available through existing laws.

While we are sad to have left radio, we are happy to announce that we are pursuing other channels to reach our audiences. We are working on something in the digital space that will allow us to help PWDs improve their quality of life and to make more noise so that employers will notice how advantageous it is for them to hire PWDs.

This is not end but a new beginning for our cause. We will more reachable, more accessible and more than willing to help those who cannot help themselves.

If there is any organization our there who wants to donate to our cause, we would greatly appreciate it. As of today, we give free disability awareness and sensibility seminars to those who want to tap into PWDs as part of their clientèle.  Any organization with front-facing crew can benefit from our seminars. All you need to do is leave us a comment with your contact information and we will call you back for the arrangements.

To those who have supported us on radio, thank you very much and more power to you!
